Deal Alert: The Best Shoes For Work Still Left in the Nordstrom Winter Clearance Sale!

Winter #NSale 2017: Shoes EditionLadies — The Nordstrom Winter Clearance Sale is still on through 2/26! I did our big workwear roundup from the Winter #Nsale last Thursday — but I thought I’d take a look at what’s left in the sale at this point. Click this link to see all of the previous things we’ve featured for Coffee Breaks and Workwear Reports that are now in the sale — TONS of stuff we’ve previously featured is on sale, including a ton of shoes from our Workwear Hall of Fame (the best-selling, top-rated styles that have been around for EONS).

Deal Alert: The Nordstrom Winter Sale

The Winter #Nsale - Workwear Picks!The Nordstrom Winter sale is on! As promised earlier, I thought I’d poke through the sale to pick out some fo the best workwear in the big winter #nsale. Some general notes at the outset:

  • Great selection of Classiques Entier — you can get an entire suit for $300! Lots of cute blazers and blouses too.
  • Lingerie-wise: so many cute Hanky Panky things are 40% off; Natori is well-represented in the sale (they have a lot of top-rated bras, including this one), as is Cosabella
  • Note that while we’ve included a few plus-size options here, you can check more out on our page full of plus-size workwear picks

One other note — each row of clothing goes from least expensive to most expensive — almost everything on the page is really affordable. (This suit is the real outlier, but it was too pretty not to include!) Pretty much everything else ranges in price from $9-$150.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Shoulder Tuck Top

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. 

I think I prefer this Halogen top to the tie-neck style from yesterday — I really like the tuck detail at the shoulder, and the notched V-neck would be gorgeous under a blazer. The blouse is also machine wash cold, tumble dry low. Nordstrom has a couple of colors/patterns on sale for $35; the patterns at full price are $59. The available sizes are regular XS-XXL and petite XXS-XL. Shoulder Tuck Top

Here’s a plus-size option, also at Nordstrom.

UPDATE: The Nordstrom Winter Sale has officially started! Stay tuned later today for an update with some of my top picks in the sale.

Coffee Break: Marley Hobo

Nordstrom is saying that the hobo is the bag trend of the season — and leave it to a brand called Hobo to actually make a great example of one. This bag, along with this Minkoff hobo bag that we’ve featured before, are actually the best reviewed hobos at Nordstrom. I like this red because it has a worn-in look without appearing sloppy — it’s quite nice. It’s $248 at Nordstrom. Amazon has it in eight colors for a price range of $175 to $248, and Zappos has it in nine colors for $248. Hobo Marley Hobo

Update: it’s in the big winter #nsale at Nordstrom, and is marked down to $148 in some colors.


Thursday’s Workwear Report: Tie Neck Sleeveless Blouse

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This very highly rated georgette blouse has 20 reviews and almost 5 stars. I tend to go back and forth on tie neck blouses, but this one, with its wavy pattern and green color, is kind of cute (here are the other colorways), and I like that it comes in regular and petite sizes up to XXL (which is a size 18). It’s machine washable and line dry, and whether you end up tucking it in or leaving it out, I think it would look great. It’s $59 at Nordstrom. Tie Neck Sleeveless Blouse

Two plus-size examples are here and here.

Update: Note that some colorways are marked down to $41 in the big winter sale at Nordstrom.

The Most-Loved Denim at Nordstrom

The Most-Loved Denim at Nordstrom (and the best jeans for women in general!)

2017 Update: The 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has started — check out our workwear picks here.

The below content is about the 2017 Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale, but has updated links for the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

We haven’t done a Weekend Wednesday in too long! Today: what are your favorite brands and styles for jeans? I was curious what the most-loved denim at Nordstrom was, so while I was doing my own research I thought I’d round them up into a Hunt-like post for you guys.  But I’m curious: Which are your favorite jeans in 2017, ladies? (And, for those of you in business casual offices, do you differentiate between weekend denim and jeans for the office? How do you wear jeans to work?) 

We’ll do the most-loved denim at Nordstrom in regular sizes first:
